Some Tips For Passengers To Call A Taxi

A taxi driver is very kind to share some suggestions and tips he has for passengers to get higher chance to call a taxi in rush hours.

  • Avoid Corners

Typically, if you wave your hand, and there are enough passengers the taxi driver can choose from, he will avoid those who stand at street corners since it will caught attention from police.

  • Avoid Crowd

If there are many people standing together and all wave their hands, he suggests that you should stand about 3 meters behind those crowd. Most taxi drivers try to avoid stop before more than one person. It also happens that some one opens the front door and the other one grap the back door, and they start to argue who should take the taxi , it is not easy for any of them to give up after standing their and waving for 20 minutes.It means another half an hour of waiting .... Taxi drivers don't want to get involved in this. They typically will choose someone who stand behind but also waving ,just stop directly in front of one person so others don't have a chance to catch up.

  • Keep Waving

According to the first rule, even though you think the taxi has slowed down for others, just keep waving. Some taxi drivers will keep moving until they see someone like you they feel comfortable to stop to avoid conflict.

  • Go To Hotels

To go to hotel front door is a good idea since many taxi drops off passengers there.

It is very interesting tip!
